The Morning After

The day after a big event all you want to do is clean up, rest, and relax. And if that event was black tie, and a little more stressful than usual, then the need to dress down is all the more necessary. This light and loose sleeveless blouse with a cheerfully abstract floral pattern makes me think of a bright sunny day in garden by a lake.  Hmmm, maybe I need a vacation. Another staple of spring is a comfortable pair of shorts. Try a dressy material like this faux leather, which transforms an otherwise casual item into a perfectly polished look. Then all you need is a stylish pair of mint green sandals with a reasonably short heel, and a simple lightweight purse with a bit of decoration like this matching mint clutch covered in tiny gold studs. Simple, colorful, comfortable, and sure to make you think of happier, better days to come.

Red Celebration

Time to celebrate!  There’s a time for subtlety, and a time to pull out all the stops.  This fiery red blazer really packs a punch.  Whether it’s an interview or an important meeting, no one will doubt that you’re a powerful force to be reckoned with.  Black is a go-to for a reason, and this soft black sweater is sleek and slimming.  Top it all off with a black clutch and matching shoes.  Platforms, 5 inch stilettos as curvy as a woman should be and in a bright, fire engine red that pulls the whole look together.
